A few photos from the week:
Hollow Tree & Richmond Rooftops framed with Dick Blick frames.
Bit of plein air sketching.
The wooden man.
My toes again.
Wrestling with mixing a natural looking green:
Ivory black with various blues and yellows.
Progress -- another Maymont tree painting.
"When we start to paint, we talk in terms of the thing we are trying to paint as opposed to the shapes we are trying to make. This inability to conceptualize the world and abstract it holds us back as painters. In the beginning we are convinced that we are drawing or painting trees or buildings or faces when all we are making are shapes on a canvas."
